This is the first release of milter manager. This release is developement release. Release schedule is the last of this mail. == About milter manager milter manager is a milter that manages multiple milters. It is a free software to help constructing flexibile and low maintenance cost mail system. milter is a pluggable message filter derived from Sendmail. Each milter provides one or more features. We can construct mail system for ourselves purporse by combining some milters. The flexibility is advantage but also weakness. The weakness is higher maintenance cost because we need to have many configuration files and associate each milter with MTA. milter manager helps constructing mail system for ourselves purporse with low maintainance cost by using milters' advantages and covering milters' weaknesses. milter manager embeds Ruby interpreter. Ruby is a real programming language that provides easy to read syntax and flexibility. milter manager can detect installed milters in system and register them dynamically by embeded Ruby interpreter. We doesn't need to change MTA configuration even if milter's socket configuration. We just change milter's configuration. It covers a weakness caused when multipe milters are used. It's milter's advantage that combine multiple milters. But all registered milters are applied to all messages. We can't select whether apply milters or not dynamically like Postfix's SMTP Access Policy Delegation. If milter can be applied like this, we will be able to share a whitelist with all milters instead of maintaining a whitelist in each milter. milter manager has some check points in milter session. They can be used for it. == More about milter manager * http://milter-manager.sourceforge.net/reference/readme.html README: License, How to get, Introductions of included tools * http://milter-manager.sourceforge.net/reference/ja/introduction.html Introduction: More details about milter manager's advantages * http://milter-manager.sourceforge.net/reference/ja/install.html * http://milter-manager.sourceforge.net/reference/ja/install-to-ubuntu.html * http://milter-manager.sourceforge.net/reference/ja/install-to-freebsd.html Install: How to install milter manager (for Ubuntu and FreeBSD) Used milters: milter-greylist, clamav-milter, spamass-milter * http://milter-manager.sourceforge.net/reference/ja/configuration.html Configuration: How to configure milter manager * http://milter-manager.sourceforge.net/coverage/ Coverage * Cutter: unit testing framework for C http://cutter.sourceforge.net/ * LCOV: coverage result formatter http://ltp.sourceforge.net/coverage/lcov.php == Release schedule 2009/1: 0.7.0 * This release 2009/2: 0.8.0 * Add Web interface for administration * Add log analyzer tool * Improve documents 2009/3: 0.9.0 * 1.0.0 RC * Freeze library API * If it has problems, 0.9.1, 0.9.2, ... are released 2009/4: 1.0.0 * If 0.9.0 doesn't have problem * If 0.9.0 has problem and 0.9.1, ... are released, 1.0.0 will be released after 2009/4. == Contact Mailing list: https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/milter-manager-users-en The future release announce will be done the ML.
